Definitely the most complete ans exhaustive account of the origins and history of the NOI currently in print. Read together with the JUDAS FACTOR this book finally unveils the myth of the NOI for what it is. An organisation which was created by charlatans who began to beleive their own lies. The thousands of people who beleived them and follwed them were far better than they were. It was the best organistaion that Black people had until its own history caught up with it. ELIJAH WAS NOT THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH. FARD WAS JUST A MAN. THE NOI WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MURDER OF MALCOLM AND THE HANAFI MASSACRE. It doesnt matter how much good Farraakhan says the NOI has acheived. The NOI as LF represents it is a mirage. The truth is even stranger than the revisionist fiction that he the so called successor to, and Tynettea the so called wife of Elijah Muhammad have concocted between them. Buy the book. Read the book. Make up your own mind. Religion is not oratory. The truth is one truth. La ilaha il Allah. Muhammad ar-Rasulullah.
